    The app states I have to update my firmware in 'overall status' where is that on the new app?

    I have update the bird OK no issues, stuck the adapter in the RC and nothing, try to fly and I get that message

    any ideas folks?

    App V 2.7.2

    P3P - 1.8.80

    RC 1.5.8

    Just checking - do you already know that you need to update the RC through the app and not with an adapter?

    The 1.8 release notes state that both the phantom and the RC need to be updated which is due to encryption changes. If you went to 1.8 on the bird already, you'll need 1.6 on the RC before you will be able to fly.

    Once you update RC to 1.6, you might also plan to update App to 2.8.0

    If you don't mind let me say something. Flying needs lots of patience and careful reading to be a successful pilot and have tons of fun. Most of the errors during flying are human errors and can definitely be avoided if we are little bit more careful.

    You are of course correct

    I am loving learning this beautiful hobby, even my minor crash ended up fun loved repairing the slight damage

    Testing my work having fun is what is all about
